What You'll Get
Gas-powered cars will soon be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by nightmares. Catch some combustion-engine action while you can with today's Groupon to the Sandia Speedway Drivers Club. Choose from three options:
- $124 covers the Titanium-level annual membership dues, plus the first monthly membership fee, which includes two hours of track time (a $248 value)
- $66 covers the Magnesium-level annual membership dues, plus the first monthly membership fee, which includes one hour of track time (a $133.99 value)
- $22 covers the Aluminum-level annual membership dues, plus the first monthly membership fee (a $44.98 value)
The Sandia Speedway Drivers Club furnishes speed junkies with a place to enjoy their own high-performance hotrods and hogs. All three membership packages include discounts on admission to all club events and a complimentary T-shirt, hat, and custom decals. Titanium membership also gets motorheads two hours of track time with priority scheduling, and vroomers at the Magnesium level get one hour of track time and secondary scheduling.
Though today’s deal gets Titanium and Magnesium members track time during their first month, monthly fees apply after that ($49 and $34.99, respectively). Groupon holders can purchase additional hours of track time at all membership levels for additional fees ($75–$90 per hour depending on membership package). On the track, greased lightnings can prove their grandeur with on-board transponders that record laps so drivers can compare their times on the club website. All drivers and riders in safety-approved cars are protected by participant accident insurance, which may or may not include coverage for uncontrollable fist-pumping spasms brought on by bouts of hyperthrillism.
The Sandia Speedway consists of a half-mile paved oval with a quarter-mile infield oval, a 1.7-mile paved road course, a Quarter Midget track, a motorcycle flat track, and an arena cross track. Tap personal adrenaline kegs on the track, or mingle with other members at the Cars, Coffee, Chile & Speed events held on Saturday mornings. Fun Runs and car-specific road-racing events are also held regularly for family-friendly spectatorship.
